Representing Creditors in Bankruptcy 

For many of our clients this means that we will also vigorously represent our clients as creditors in bankruptcy court, when a client customer or contract debtor filed bankruptcy . We can advise our clients and attend court proceedings on all aspects of bankruptcy, in order to protect our clients. This includes pre-bankruptcy negotiations and before the court to get a return of the collateral that is pledged for loans, or to work on a better, more fair , plan for payment to our client.
